Did you know that July 3rd is National Eat Beans Day? But not all baked beans are created equally. One cup of Vegetarian Baked Beans will cost you 239 calories (1 gram of fat, 0mg cholesterol, 11 grams fiber, 12 grams protein and 551 mg potassium) and contribute a whopping 856 mg of sodium. That's a small change compared to one cup of regular Boston Baked Beans with 392 calories and an outrageous 1149 mg of sodium (12 grams of fat, 13 mg cholesterol, 10 grams fiber, 15 grams protein and 1068 mg of potassium).
